- How do I look from fantasy to reality /
- A documentary capturing the Harlem "Ball" traditions that originated in the 70's, an historically off shot from the Harlem "Drag Balls" from the 20's. Because of the loss of hundreds of members of the "Ball" community due to the HIV epidemic, How Do I Look recorded an important aspect of the history and legacy. Focuses primarily on the icon and legends Pepper Labeija, Willi Ninja, Tracy Africa, Kevin Omni and Octavia St. Laurent, who took their talents outside the "Ball" community successfully and opened many doors for their community.

- A documentary about the young homosexual men of Harlem who originated "voguing" and turned these stylized dance competitions into glittering expressions of fierce personal pride. A story of street-wise urban survival, gay self-affirmation, and the pursuit of a desperate dream.
